    Summary

    There’s nothing particularly special about tonight. But Dan is again, and surely not for the last time, caught up in the thought that he wants this to be the rest of his life.

    “Dan looks like he’s thinking big thoughts,” Eddie comments with a smirk, drawing Dan out of his musings.

    “I was thinking about getting you a ring,” Dan replies, without thinking at all, actually.

    The complete silence he gets in response clues him in that maybe that hadn’t been the line of thinking the others had been following. He lifts his head to find Anne and Eddie both staring at him wide-eyed.

    “A ring for me?” Eddie clarifies.

     

    (Dan loves his life and his partners. They’re all looking forward to their future together.)

    Summary

    Salvation should not be this easy, he thinks, reaching out. The scriptures preach piety and humility and toil in order to reach heaven, and in all his life he has only ever done one of those things.

    “Go with God,” Diarmuid tells him, voice gentle like the tide.

    Coda for the film – the progression of the relationship between Diarmuid and the Mute as told through missing scenes and flashbacks.

    Summary

    The thing is, Javi is used to a little loneliness by now. He knows how to cope with it, who to call. Knows better than to turn to his partner for a helping hand when he gets desperate for someone’s skin on his. But it’s new for Steve. He hasn’t figured it out yet. He’ll get there. And this is part of it.

    So it’s not that he’s afraid to face him. He’s just looking out for him, as a friend. Giving him the space he needs to feel ashamed and wallow alone and maybe—Javi’s heart twists a little in a sensation he decides to label hope—maybe call his wife and apologize sincerely, now that he’s hit rock bottom.

    He does a good enough job convincing himself of this that it takes him by surprise when Steve shows up at the office a little after noon, and then he belies the entire story he’s concocted for himself when Steve looks at him and Javi immediately looks away, unable to meet his gaze. Like a fucking coward.

    (A sequel to Like to Tell You All I Want. In which Javi is a little dumb and Steve gets a little frustrated.)

    Summary

    They meet like any men in their business meet - one pointing a gun at the other.

    Or, precedently, not on Fargo.
